I Carusi II is a hidden little St Kilda gem. Open since 2004, it has first provided some of the best Napolitan pizzas in Melbourne. It has grown over the years and is becoming the friendly unpretentious neighbourhood restaurant that is missing in St Kilda and the bayside. I Carusi II still offers its legendary pizzas but the menu now offers many other Italian favourites, with a function area for up to 25 people, home delivery and daily seasonal specials. Open 7 nights a week.

    The pizzas were amazing - definitely some of the best we’ve ever had but we were really let down by the rest of the food - the seafood risotto hardly had any seafood in it, looked like brown slush and tasted weird while the lasagne was super dry and lacking in sauce. A shame because it has the capacity to be a really charming and authentic Italian restaurant.

    Love this place. We started off downstairs, but it was too loud for our sensitive ears 🤣, so we were kindly loved upstairs. A classic St Kilda institution!
